this came from an old Amish cookbook...have not tried these yet..but wanted to keep the recipe on file..I find it intriguing about heating the sugar and water to make frosting..can't wait to try it..

These cookies are not very flavorful, actually they are blah tasting and the frosting tastes like Crisco and vanilla. I would not make them again.
